Les Trois Princesses de Monaco

It is a shame that the majority of French-language books on the Monagesque Princely Family never get translated into English.  There is a market for these books.  The Prince of Monaco's mother was the American-born Grace Kelly, and his new wife is a former South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock.

One of the newest books on the Monagesque princely family is Les Trois Princesses de Monaco (l'Archipel:18.95 Euros).  This book, published in paperback, focuses on the lives and relationships of the new Princess of Monaco and her sisters-in-law, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie.

Princess Caroline has a vested interest in the succession.   Unless Charlene bears a child, the succession will pass to Caroline and her elder son, Andrea.

Lunel is a French journalist, and he offers an honest portrait of three distaff Grimaldis.

This is a refreshing look at the history and personality of Monaco as seen through the eyes of the the three Princess of Monaco.
